Starting Over


Had a doctor's appointment yesterday, and got some great news!  My Creatnin number (the Holy Grail, as it were) has apparently gone down to EIGHTY-THREE.  YES. THAT IS 83.

This is a big deal.

83 is a normal number for creatnin to be at.

When I was in the hospital, my creatnin was around 140. That was bad.

That this number is going down means that the drugs are working. THANK GOODNESS, because THAT means that I (hopefully) won't have to go on the drug that will make me infertile at nineteen years old.  Call me crazy, but I'd like to have the option of starting a family someday.

The doctor said that my bone density scan results were better than average, so he took me off the Actonel (yaaay!) and he's also started taking down the dosage of my Prednisone - in eight weeks I will be down to 10mg/day, as opposed to the 80mg/day I was on yesterday.  This makes me SO HAPPY because I hate the side effects of the Prednisone.

Things are looking up, health-wise!
